Last week I mentioned the sad state of sartorial affairs on the streets of our beautiful Paris. Since it is my mission to help those in dire need of dressing assistance, I flipped through a few spring/summer 2011 collections to select a smattering of items one could comfortably (read stylishly) wear in Paris, Rome, New York, London -- any city in the world.
Before you jump to false conclusions, the idea is to show you "broad strokes" or ideas. I'm not being literal. You can see built into each of these ensembles is an idea any one of us can take into our own wardrobes and come out with something similar.
I would suggest, since we're talking about walking about in cities that the shoe issue would take a re-think. Ballerinas are always an excellent choice as are derbies. A small wedge perhaps? An espadrille?
I plan on doing this another day. It was so much fun. Then we'll talk about packing. I would love it if you would share any of your special packing secrets for all of us to use and enjoy. If you have a blog I will definitely link back to you. Merci par avance.
